Is Richarlison or Gylfi Sigurdsson better FPL value at £8.0m?

The release of the Fantasy Premier League price list has seen Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson both priced up as £8.0m midfielders.

Everton sit top of our Season Ticker for the first ten Gameweeks of the season and are the only Premier League side to avoid a ‘big six’ club in their opening half-dozen matches, so interest in the Toffees’ Fantasy assets will be keen.

Both Richarlison and Sigurdsson scored 13 top-flight goals last season and recorded their best-ever FPL points hauls.

Given that the Everton midfield duo can’t be separated by price, we will run a direct statistical comparison in the Members’ article below to weigh up the pros and cons of each asset.

As well as the usual goal threat and creativity comparisons, we’ll be assessing their record against ‘lesser’ sides (given Everton’s favourable run at the start of 2019/20) using our new Flat-Track Bully tool.

    Seriously wonder how many people who have DCL in their drafts will follow through and start the season with him.

      I've got a spot for a 6.0m striker/midfielder but think I prefer Ings over DCL

        Agree completely. DCL is a poor player

      Fixtures and the manager likes him. It's not my cup of tea but with defences taking up peoples cash cheap starting forwards are required.

      He was in my very first draft as an enabler but I very quickly realised I wouldn't be happy playing him every week and he's too expensive for a bench option.

      Same he is terrible 6 goals in 35 games last season, not very clinical

        How about this one!

        Ryan

        Robertson TAA Mendy Coleman
        Salah Bilva Zaha
        Arnie King Agüero

        Button, Dendoncker, Reid, Guendouzi

        1. Hombre
            18 days, 3 hours ago

            i balanced it a bit out 🙂

            Ryan Heaton
            Robertson TAA Coleman Dunk Lascelles
            Salah Bilva Zaha Dendoncker Kante
            Arnie King Aguero

            Balance between Ryan and Heaton
            And i can change between Dunk and Lascelles

          Why the love for Josh King here?

          I understand he did well last season but isn't he like the striker version of Mili, way too dependant on penalties.

            Pretty proven FPL track record, decent price point, nailed in an attack-minded team, VAR possibly increasing the amount of penalties awarded, decent fixtures.

            1. The Royal Robin
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              18 days, 3 hours ago

              He’s 100% staying in my team. Proven record of double figure goals per season, good fixtures, nailed, cheaper than Wilson, on pens.

          2. Nuno
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            18 days, 3 hours ago

            The price point more than anything else, compared to Wilson and Fraser in particular

            • 5 Years

            He starts with the best fixtures of the 6.5m strikers, that's why.

            Structure is key

            I'm on him because I like Bournemouth's attacking output and he is a cheaper version of Wilson.

            Side note, he has also outscored Rashford in every one of the last four seasons.

            15/16-
            King: 98 points, 6 goals.
            Rashford: 55 points, 5 goals.

            16/17-
            King: 178 points, 16 goals.
            Rashford: 76 points, 5 goals.

            17/18-
            King: 110 points, 8 goals.
            Rashford: 104 points, 7 goals.

            18/19-
            King: 141 points, 12 goals.
            Rashford: 128 points, 10 goals.

              Better to look at points per 90 mins IMO. Rashford is a good player, but if he isn't given the no.1 striker spot, he should put in a transfer request IMO. Unless he likes sitting on the bench and becoming a crap player (e.g. Welbeck).

              15/16-
              King: 4.6
              Rashford: 5.8

              16/17-
              King: 5.9
              Rashford: 4.0

              17/18-
              King: 4.0
              Rashford: 5.2

              18/19-
              King: 4.3
              Rashford: 4.9

          Chelsea have a serious lack of attackers registered in FPL as it stands. Just an aging trio of Willian, Pedro and Giroud. CHO and RLC injured. Who else do they have to come in, just Tammy and Pulisic?

            Barkley can play more attacking. Just think it's Tammy Giroud up front. Pulisic, CHO, Pedro & Willian for wings. RLC/Barkley in 10. IF Lampard plays 4-2-3-1. Reece James may come back and threaten a wing place.

            Mason Mount, maybe that Pasalic guy as well

          They don't rotate home and away, but with a £4.5m defender from Brighton and Newcastle, you can go the entire thirty-eight week season without facing a fixture higher than a three on the game's FDR, of which twenty-nine of the games are two out of five.

          BHA (H), WHU (H), SOU (H), new (A), BUR (H), new (A), wol (A), SHU (H), avl (A), BOU (H), NOR (H), nor (A), BUR (H), sou (A), lei (A), WOL (H), pal (A), SHU (H), shu (A), AVL (H), WOL (H), bou (A), AVL (H), avl (A), EVE (H), bha (A), shu (A), CRY (H), cry (A), LEI (H), bur (A), SOU (H), nor (A), NOR (H), NEW (H), sou (A), NEW (H), bur (A).

            Great spot.

            Probably unlikely to yield as much as a premium + fodder, but nice to start with a bench

            1. BDA Shadow
              • 4 Years
              18 days, 1 hour ago

              Premium+fodder being 6m+4m surely, that's 1m more than 4.5m+4.5m. I agree though, not sure how great it will be. If I get any Newcastle defender it would be Ritchie and he's not getting benched often, but with those fixtures I wouldn't buy and play.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            Lascelles & Dunk would work nicely

            It's really awkward that I've typed Brighton and Newcastle because I definitely meant Brighton and Watford. Yikes!

            1. Brooksy86
              • 2 Years
              18 days, 3 hours ago

              Dunk and Craigy D then

            Thanks. Uncertainty about managers and style of play makes me wonder if I want to rotate their defenders.

            Yet if there is nailed cheap Brighton mid and NEW defender, it might be worth considering. Dunk is the best 4.5 Brighton asset though?

            My post on rotation pairs - you need to read through the thread though as that was just the first part.

          If I may be so bold (as in "annoying") to ask, would you pick between these two teams?

          Team A, 4-5-1:

          Ederson
          TAA / Robertson / Laporte / Coleman
          Salah / KDB / Siggy / Zaha / Maddie
          King

          4.0, Elmohamady, 4.5, 4.5

          Pros: Strong defence, strong midfield
          Cons: No bench at all aside from Elmo, no premium striker
          ___

          Team B, 3-5-2:

          Ryan
          TAA / VVD / Coleman
          Salah / KDB / Siggy / Zaha / Maddie
          Vardy / King

          4.0, Elmohamady, 4.0, 4.5

          Pros: TAA and VVD, strong midfield, good strikers
          Cons: Ryan, no bench at all aside from Elmo

          1. Laporte In A Storm
            • 3 Years
            18 days, 3 hours ago

            Villa fan here: Not Elmo. He won't be first choice, Frederic Gilbert (new singing) will be. If you really want a 4.5 Villa defender it should now be Matt Targett.

            1. Ask Yourself
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              18 days, 3 hours ago

              This but surely Elmo will keep his place after AFCON form

              1. Laporte In A Storm
                • 3 Years
                18 days, 3 hours ago

                I could be wrong, but I really don't think so. Elmo will be off the pace in the prem. Gilbert will be the first choice I think.

              Oh, and I prefer 3-5-2. If your only striker is still only a 6.5, it just feels really wrong to me.

                  Your 3-5-2 is actually causing me a rethink. KDB over Sterling just allows you so much more balance. Here is my current 3-4-3

                  Pickford
                  Robbo / VVD / Laporte
                  Salah / Sterling / Siggy / Kante
                  Arnie / King / Jota

                  Button / Cathcart / Stephens / Gibson.

          First go at one of these, a little unsure on 5 at the back but not sure who I'd rather have at an equal price point further up the field.

          Thoughts?

          Ryan
          Robertson VVD Laporte Digne Coleman
          Sterling Salah KDB

            A) Laporte & Brooks/Gros/Redmond?

                He’d be my first choice if I knew who Newcastle’s manager was, and they had better fixtures.

                  Price. With so much money at the back it's hard to find 8.0 for a Bournemouth attacker. I don't think anybody with King expects him to outscore Wilson but that 1.5 allows an extra Liverpool/Man City defender. Not saying nobody has a decent team with him in btw.

                      It’s bizzare mate. Seeing a lot of people go for Jiminez rather than Aguero too. Just doesn’t make sense

                            If I may: even if King/Vardy is your only striker on a 4-5-1?

                          Would prefer DCL -> King, but I"ve got no idea where to get this additional 0,5m

                            Robbo > VVD ?
                            Bilva > Zaha ?

                              Thanks, may consider the option with Zaha

                            Would you be willing to consider no Kane, or he's essential to you?

                              Well, I think he is a bargain considering his pedigree, also will be motivated after what happened in the end of the previous season

                                While I do agree, I think your team could be so much better (as in well balanced) if were you willing to turn your Kane into a, say, Jamie Vardy.

                                From a different perspective, I also think your team would be better if your Digne were Coleman, your Robbo a VVD, and you'd have Kun instead of Kane.

                                But that's me

                            Between those two then A. Wouldn't be too confident on Long starting though. But I do not have enough information regarding Saints' striker options. Heard something about Adam + Ings being the prefered pair.

                              I'm toying of going heavy for a strong start before manipulating a few transfers and wildcard as form settles down.

                              Heston, van Dijk, TAA, Coleman, Salah, Sterling, Sigurdsson, McArtfur, Dendncker, Kane, Deulefeu.

                              Thoughts please

                            Subs: Button Dedoncker Hayden 4.5

                            Thought of the following options

                            A) Laporte + Hayden --> Zaha + Kelly
                            B) Mendy + 4.5 --> Jota + Kely (worried about Mendy's game time)

                            Any suggestions on how to improve this team is appreciated 🙂

                              Mendy was amazing at the start of the last season, so i cant see him not starting this season, but this is Pep so could be completely wrong

                            Why has no one hardly got Kane? Surely he is nailed on even though he struggles in August

                              We like our forwards in the single digits. Saves money for the good players

                              I've got Kane currently. Bargain @ 11m, too much to ignore.

                            I am a Liverpool fan and because of the African cup exertions I’m not considering Salah or mane. Sterling should start and I think KDB might do well as well. Not sure between Mandy or zinch? Any views

                              Agree on liverpool. I am a fan too. Zinchenko

                                Thanks but Mendy is a better player especially going forward but probably a little injury prone. A lot of people are picking Mendy but like you I have gone for zinchenko

                            Could Barkley be an option? Injuries to Loftus-Cheek and Hudson-Odoi, new manager and a complete lack of attacking options at Chelsea may give him the nod in behind a lone striker.
